Montchanin company creates new corporate training app
Fort Hill Company, a Montchanin firm, launched a new corporate training app today. Dubbed 70-20, it is a software-as-a-service (SaaS) web app designed for use with any connected mobile or desktop device.
Developed in collaboration with partner Affero Lab, 70-20 leverages mobile and social technologies in the lives of today’s workforce to allow on-the-job learning relevant to employees, especially millennials, who show less interest in formal training programs.
Fort Hill’s app can be used any time oatany connected location, so users can access learning on the job or off-site.They can also track their progress and share it with colleagues and coaches and leverage the ideas of a group. They can post visuals and invite feedback from colleagues.
Users can also connect with others who share the same learning challenges .
Leaders can create learning challenges and monitor performance improvement on a built-in dashboard. The app creates metrics on performance improvement and learning outcomes at a group and individual level.
Because it is a SaaS-based product, clients do not need to install any software on the IT systems to run it.
“There is a serious gap right now in professional skill development for most organizations,” said Kathy Granger, president of Fort Hill Company. “The primary focus remains on learning compliance and control when it should be on activating employee development by facilitating learning curiosity and creativity. It’s a huge opportunity for companies to truly differentiate themselves and their organizations. 70-20 fills this gap by enabling employees to tap into the rich opportunities created by mobile and social technologies to put their learning and development into action any time and any place.”
